Sangiacomo Fredrik Vineyard, Eleven Different Clones & Rootstock Combinations

Wine Profile
Young, singing, plump and generous! An untamed wildness and tons of personality slide this wine right into the crowd pleaser category. Loaded with fresh red fruits, silky viscosity, sweet ripe tannins and waves of density and concentration Mike Smith is known for.

Palate Impressions
Ruby red, the Sangiacomo Vineyard Syrah is loaded with a rich, succulent dark & red fruits and a bold texture. Sumptuous aromas of white pepper, roasted savory herbs and dark raspberries are enhanced on the palate to show black cherry, plum, saddle leather and loads of nutmeg spice.

Myriad Context
Certified organic with 60 planted acres and 11 clone and rootstock combinations, the Fedrick Vineyard is deeply woven throughout Sonoma & Petaluma history. Originally part of the Rancho Petaluma Land Grant issued to Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo in 1834, the land passed thru several owners from dairy farms to cattle ranches before being leased by the Sangiacomo family in 2000 to become a vineyard. Located in the southern end of the Petaluma Gap appellation, it is set on rolling hills and is known for its high-end Syrah and Pinot Noir grapes that are sought after for their depth and balance. Myriad selected a small rise on the southern edge where growing and drainage conditions harmonize, to make one of our more crowd pleasing bolder Syrahs.
